Description

Burt Reynolds plays detective Steve Carella in this 1972 adaptation of an Ed McBain novel, and Jack Weston does his cynical best as Carella's partner, Meyer Meyer. A reflection of its raucous era, <I>Fuzz</I> is as much influenced by the antiauthority high jinks of Robert Altman's <I>M*A*S*H</I> as it is by the unblinking violence of <I>The Godfather</I> or <I>Bonnie and Clyde</I>. The mixed result is a tough-minded crime drama-comedy with one extreme subplot (punks setting sleeping winos ablaze for kicks) and another, more fantastic one (a mad bomber called Deaf Man, played by Yul Brynner, is targeting politicians with his surprise packages). Raquel Welch is also on board as an undercover/under-the-covers policewoman, and Tom Skerritt is the beneficiary of her largesse. <I>Fuzz</I> suffered some brief notoriety when it was linked to some real-life torchings of innocent people. On a happier note, <I>Fuzz</I> affords a rare opportunity to see Reynolds in drag.
